Not good enough, we bet. Because we doubt you’re reading this by the pool at a Swiss spa. You might be too busy looking after other people. Your personal wellbeing might be way down on your list of priorities. You might be working all hours. And money might be tight.
At Idaraya Life – thanks to our lovely and generous sponsors – we’ve got free classes, activities and coaching to get you into some really good habits. So you’ll feel physically and mentally fitter. Take a peek at what we’ve got on offer, and join in.
For those of you who don’t speak Yorùbá, Idaraya means “exercise” (well, "things that make the body/self feel good"). Handy to know if you ever find yourself in Nigeria wearing a leotard and a pair of trainers.
Please note that we’re mainly here for racially marginalised women: the people hardest hit by equalities in health. That being said, we serve all women and just make a determined effort to reach where the needs are most pressing.
We are a women-led and women-focused organisation.
Our lived experiences and professional background ensure that our programmes are created with empathy for the intricate lives women often live.
Hiking, Cycling, Tie-Dye, Kayaking, Cooking and so much more....
We have developed an offering that includes a wide range of health and wellbeing activities to ensure that you find what truly supports you as a person.
Variety is the spice of life and our group includes a wonderful range of women.
We welcome all women and are determined to have the most joyfully accesible, inclusive and diverse community of women taking charge of their physical, emotional health.
All Women and Girls (Aged 14 and over) are welcome to the safe, secluded, secure pool at Ashton Leisure centre. We come together to celebrate being women and to feel comfortable in the water going at our own pace. We play pool games and you can also simply enjoy some pool time, swimming as you like.
*Remember all girls aged 14 and 15 must be accompanied by an adult. 16 and 17 year old can come alone but must have a consent letter signed by their responsible adult.*
